Novitec Rosso has prepared a tuning kit for the Maserati GranCabrio that boosts its performance as well as its looks. The Maserati GranCabrio has been fitted with several clear-coated carbon fiber components, such as a front spoiler lip, carbon fiber grille surround, rocker panel trim, a rear spoiler lip and diffuser. It also received a set of 21/22 inch alloys (front and rear) that feature a five double-spoke design and covered in Pirelli P Zero tires.
When it comes to performance, Novitec Rosso upgraded the 4.7-liter V8 engine to deliver an added 150hp and 82 Nm (62 lb.ft.) to get to this amazing output of 590hp at 7300 rpm and 472 Nm (348 lb.ft.) of torque at 5400 rpm.
As a result, the Maserati GranCabrio is able to accelerate from a standstill to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 301 km/h (187 mph). Priced at EUR19,900, the engine conversion is complemented with the Novitec Tridente sport exhaust system.
The fully stainless-steel system features four slanted tailpipes with diameters of 90 millimeters. In addition, buyers have the option to get the control flap installed or do without it. The tuners say that when there are control flaps, the driver can engage in sound tuning from the cockpit.
They also explained that depending on what the control flaps' position is, the eight-cylinder engine would mean that the car will be aggressive (such as a race car).
Novitec also gave the GranCabrio a height-adjustable coilover suspension, which gets back to its original position instantly upon hitting a speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). Its interior upgrades include the use of Alcantara leather “in any desired color.”
By having the tire/wheel NOVITEC TRIDENTE combination on this drop-top Maserati, it improves the driving dynamics and even optimizes the use of any available space on its wheel wells. This gives it that striking look. With the use of the alloy 21-inch wheels on the front axle and the alloy 22-inch wheels for the rear axle, this helps highlight the sports car’s wedge-shaped design.
The three-piece wheels have five double spokes and can be availed in the desired color. It can even be carbon fiber coated on request. The wheels on the front axle have rims sized 9Jx21 and have been fitted with the high-performance Pirelli P Zero tires sized at 255/30 ZR 21.
For the rear axle, helping provide optimum traction are the rims sized 11.5Jx22 with the tires sized 315/25 ZR 22. Its sport NOVITEC TRIDENTE suspension has been calibrated to meet the requirements of the high-performance tires. This suspension enables the customer to choose the preferred ride height.
This is done by lowering or changing the damper settings. It does not stop there. In order to enhance its everyday use, its body can be hydraulically lifted with the front and the rear axle going as high as 40 millimeters by just pressing a button. This makes it able to go through parking garage ramps or speed bumps that much easier.
Similarly by pressing the same button, the suspension is once again lowered and returned to its original position. In addition, once the vehicle manages to reach 50 mph, the suspension itself goes automatically to the original position.
